[Wlug] Blanking screen blanking @#$!

I thought that the VT blanking was separate from the X blanking.  Any
chance you're running X in frame buffer mode?  Maybe then the VT
blanking matters?  Just a shot in the dark.

The answer would fall squarely on "something else."  Currently it's
afterstep, but I don't think the WM is a factor because it happens when
I'm using no WM at all (Hardcore X) or at the VT or anything.  I was
grepping some kernel sources which led me to the setterm hypothesis, but
I'm still nowhere.
